Haiku by Dog: Distance

Haiku by Dog: Sometimes the shortest / distance between two points is / a series of leapsToday’s haiku is by Lilah.


Life isn’t always a straight line; it’s twists and turns, ups and downs, fits and starts.

Life isn’t a steady, smooth progression toward a goal; you can’t always see the destination.

Life isn’t a clear path; you may have to find your own way.

In today’s Haiku by Dog, Lilah makes her way through a challenging obstacle — snow that is too deep for her to simply walk through — by taking one leap at a time.

What have your pets taught you?

    Lilah, so clever.

  2. Emma says:

    Since we got 10″ of snow Sunday night, we are doing a lot of leaping around here!

    Go Lilah! I think she’s right in her haiku. My pets have taught me a number of things. If I have to pick one, I guess I’d say that they taught me to love the little things in life. If you can let yourself be made happy by small things, you will always be happy.

    Wow, Lilah! That’s deep. So is that snow! 🙂

  6. Daisy says:

    We had a heavy snowfall on the first day of spring, and Daisy actually enjoyed romping through chest-high depths. Unfortunately it’s already melted away. 🙁

  7. Love the Haiku! What kind of dog is Lilah? She looks so much like my Roxy. We aren’t sure what Roxy is as she was a rescue but we think she is Border Collie.

  8. Kitties Blue says:

    We sure hope that photo wasn’t taken too recently. We are so happy the snow is gone from here. Even if we leap, we wouldn’t be able to get out of snow that deep. How true your Haiku. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth ad Calista Jo
